Stuck in traffic, I was reflecting on a certain practice member, specifically her bravery in times of turmoil. Though the original reason for contacting me was quite ordinary, as I listened to her story, it became apparent how much more of her body/mind/soul was calling out for help. Here are a few thoughts that came to mind on the topic of healing. I thought I’d share on this Sunday morning.
Healing. It is a blessing. Because in the pain, one reaches out. It is because one knows one deserves more, one is capable of more, one expects more out of life. It is because one is honest enough with oneself to acknowledge one needs help because healing cannot be done alone. It is only with the collaboration of one’s own spirit with self-love that one (finally!) asks to be in cahoots with another soul (with equal compassion + insight), thereby opening the channels for healing. It’s energy being released, baggage being discarded, a new breath of air being inhaled. It is about life now (not later). Choosing boldly. Stepping forth bravely. Trusting anyway.
